"the new york times" reporting this morning that president obama will call for a new minimum tax rate for millionaires and will dub the proposal the buffett rule in reference to billionaire warren buffett who has advocated that the superrich should pay their fair share of taxes. but what are the prospects now among republicans? what sort of plan is realistic in the midst of this election cycle? here with us for two live interviews, the republican leader of the senate, mitch mcconnell, and former president of the united states, bill clinton. leader mcconnell, let me start with you and ask you whether this president's plan on a million

to congress. rick from michigan, republican. caller: your guests represent two different points of view. i do not want one guy to speak to me at all. the one problem in the government is the federal reserve. we have been under the thumb of the reserve from 1913. these people are running the economy. obama cannot do anything. the congress has given up their constitutional responsibility. we need to redo this whole thing. the system is broke. we pay a gasoline tax. that is supposed to pay all the road costs. we're paying too much tax as it is. we need to eliminate the federal income tax. the others need to be looked at. we have to look at the monetary system. if you print another $447 billion -- we are broke. host: does get reaction. what did you think about his comments? -- let's get reaction. guest: he doesn't want me to talk because i do not agree with this point of view. one of the big problems of the federal reserve is that it is not doing as much as it could be doing to fight the recession. you have ben bernanke doing a lot of pretty aggressive moves. he has not done big quantitative easi

chairman from michigan. >> thank you. in 2009, solyndra was the first to receive a d.o.e. eight loans funded by stimulus dollars. it is a model for how the government's venture capital program and green technology should work. they have filed for bankruptcy. we are starting to look at d.o.e. loan guarantee program. some questioned the basis for this investigation. after wrangling to produce relevant documents, the committee was forced to submit a subpoena. i think this shows the committee was more than justify it in scrutiny of the deal. pursuant to our functions, we have a responsibility to pursue answers regarding the use of taxpayer money. this raises several questions about whether the administration did everything it could to protect dollars. why did the administration think solyndra was such a good bet and push ahead to provide a solyndra guaranteed this year? why did d.o.e. allow the government to be subordinated to the private investors and a violation of the log? i look forward to the testimony. i want to know what the failure means for the loan guarantee program. is it the t
critical of this solyndra deal. fred upton of michigan and cliff stearns of florida issued a joint statement yesterday. it read, quote, with taxpayers potentially on the hook for this half billion-dollar bust, it's time to sound the alarm about the remaining $10 billion in loan guarantees set to expire september 30." a quick timeline. it was back in september of 2009 that solyndra secured the loan guarantee of about half a billion dollars from the department of energy. in march of last year, the company's auditor had substantial doubt about solyndra's ability to continue. so red flag there. two months later president obama visited solyndra and touted it as the model for clean tech business. then in november, the company announced it would be laying off some workers in manufacturing consolidation. this past february there was a restructuring deal. the department of energy extended the loan guarantee from 7 to 10 years and then of course last month the company suddenly announced its shutdown laying off 1100 workers and went bankrupt. so it all happened very quickly. the top two exe
's already another case pending in the supreme court. that is one that came out of michigan, the sixth circuit court of appeals, which said the obama care is fine, they upheld the law. so now you have potentially two cases. it would seem very likely then that the supreme court would take the case up this term. >> does it matter which case they take up? i mean, i guess it matters in the case of do you defend or do you go against the one decision or defend what are the court rulings. >> my guess is that the supreme court would take both of them and do what they call consolidating them. in other words, sort of roll them all up into one big ball and say let's look at both decisions here. now, by the way, we're assuming that the supreme court would take the case. let me just say -- >> why wouldn't they? >> there are other cases pending. there's one in washington in the federal circuit. there's sort of a late to the party issue here, which is is the way to look at this say it's a tax and if p there is a tax, there's a federal law that says you can't challenge a law that would -- >> delay to
